When coming up with a suitable name for this blog, I wanted it to say something about me and the things I love. The first part of this blog’s name has to do with my best friend in the whole wide world, my beloved labrador Zelton. That hot summer day in 2006 when we rescued him from the dog pound has been one of the best decisions we ever made. He has been my sidekick and best friend for six years, so it was only naturally for me to incorporate something of him in this blog. His passing away in the summer of 2011 left me heartbroken, but I am grateful to have had such good company in him. My blog reminds me of him every day, but in a good way. Thanks for the inspiration Zel.
On to a lighter note, the dresses part. I started this blog thinking it would mainly revolve around fashion, so there just had to be some kind of fashion aspect in the name. I’m a sucker for dresses, and I happen to be a sucker for alliterations too, so when the name dogs and dresses popped into my head it just felt right.(ps. i’m sorry if i’ve lead you on thinking you’d get to see little doggies posing in frilly fuchsia dresses, but thankfully there’s always Google for that.)
I love fashion. Always have, always will. It’s an accessible form of art and i love to play around with it, explore new things and broaden up my view. By no means am i trying to present myself as an expert, this blog’s merely here to capture my adventures and function as a bit of a diary. I would however want you to take a look and give me your honest opinion on things. I’m a twenty-something on a budget, which means I can’t be parading around in haute couture all day long, but what I can do is read fashion magazines, browse collections on Style.com and learn about designers and their inspirations. This way I try to translate the oh-so-magical but yet oh-so-expensive runway looks into affordable outfits that I find on the high street, in vintage shops and on eBay.
